Reading influence the Writing

Thank You earthwalker for nominating me. I consider myself a writer even though I’ve never sold a single book. I’ve written 3 and soon I’m releasing my 4th, yet not a penny in my pocket. But yes that makes of me a writer. Unfortunately I’ve never been seen as one by my dad who “enjoys” criticizing the way I write. But nonetheless, I write! So I’m taking this challenge.

The Challenge: Identify that person who is/was the major influencer of your passion.

Rules:

• Share with the world your #OnePerson story.
• Pingback to the post (or add the link in the comments).
• Add the pictures, if you like.
• Humor and quotes are welcome.
• You can even come up with your own title for the post.
• And use your own featured image for the post.
• Spread the word: up to 3 – 5 bloggers.

Who Inspiried me? Let me see…..I’ve stated reading very young, my dad bought me my first books, including the cherished Harry Potter! He was the one to talk to me about it. Even though I wasn’t very interested in serie, He bought me the first 4 of them. Then it was up to me to save my pocket money to buy the rest. Then came the Lord of the Rings (among others), He bought me the 3 of them. And I was so happy to have been part of that voyage, which turns these books into my favorite ones.
So, who was my influencer? If it wasn’t for my dad, I would never have read, hence never have written ! But for him, it is more important to read than to write.

Time for quotes:

(I’m not sure that my dad knows this quote, but he surely repeats it in his own words!)
“Read, read, read. Read everything – trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”
–William Faulkner

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
–Benjamin Franklin

“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.”
–Robert Frost

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
–Toni Morrison

Author: Novus Lectio

You'll never know what you'll read next. Random lecture is what is all about but one thing is for sure, it's by the same author who wrote The Theory of Fate and Who Went Out of Africa
